He's caught on camera robbing the Walgreens on Harrodsburg Road in Lexington in the early hours of October 5th.

"A slim, short male walked in wearing all black and he had socks over his hands," says Detective Elizabeth Adams with Lexington Police.

He's clearly caught on tape demanding cash from the employee at the register.

"He lifted up the register drawer to see if any receipts or checks or money were under them and there was not," says Detective Elizabeth Adams.

You can see the man, armed with a semi-automatic gun, rob the Walgreens. They say he also robs a customer in the store.

"He took her purse including her personal identification, cell phone, and things like that," says Detective Adams.

They say it's not the only robbery he's committed. Days before authorities say he robbed a Shell Service Station, once again wearing socks over his hands, and could be linked to other robberies in some surrounding counties.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 cash reward for information leading to an arrest in this case. Call Crime Stoppers at 859-253-2020. It's a free call and it's anonymous.
